Jacksonville Jaguars running back Travis Etienne (foot), who missed his entire rookie season in 2021 due to a Lisfranc foot injury, said "I definitely feel like as of now I'll be ready for training camp, I'll be ready to go." Etienne has been running, and the next step is to get back to lifting weights and running at full speed. James Robinson tore his Achilles in mid-December, so the Jaguars backfield is in flux entering the offseason. Etienne, who was the 25th overall pick in the first round in 2021, should eventually have a considerable role in the Jaguars backfield as a do-it-all weapon, but his fantasy value will depend on how his and Robinson's rehab progresses over the spring and summer.
Jacksonville Jaguars rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence has been through a lot this year and hasn't played very well. However, in Week 18 while eliminating the Indianapolis Colts from playoff contention, Lawrence went 23-for-32 for 223 yards and two touchdowns. Although it wasn't a great performance and he struggled for most of the year, it's impossible to call the No. 1 overall pick a bust just yet. With a hopefully more stable coaching staff in 2022, fantasy managers will be able to better assess Lawrence. Despite the complicated situation, he still flashed occasionally, but fantasy managers would've liked to have seen more. The rookie is still valued extremely highly in dynasty leagues, and fantasy managers shouldn't buy or sell quite yet.
Jacksonville Jaguars tight end James O'Shaughnessy (hip) was unable to practice all week and has been ruled out for the Week 18 regular season finale against the Indianapolis Colts. O'Shaughnessy will close out his season by missing the final two games. The 29-year-old will end with 24 receptions on 34 targets for 244 yards and no touchdowns in seven games. It's hard to say who will play the most on Sunday against the Colts among Jacob Hollister, Chris Manhertz and Luke Farrell at the position for the Jaguars, but fantasy managers should be avoiding the situation altogether. The Colts have been a good matchup for opposing TEs this year, but Jacksonville's tight end committee isn't attractive whatsoever.
Jacksonville Jaguars tight end James O'Shaughnessy (hip) missed a second straight day of practice this week on Thursday. After sitting out the Week 17 blowout loss to the New England Patriots, O'Shaughnessy looks primed to finish out the season on the sidelines in the Week 18 regular season finale against the Indianapolis Colts. The good news is that the Jags have gotten tight ends Jacob Hollister and Chris Manhertz back from the COVID-19 list for this weekend's game, so they'll have a little more help at the position if O'Shaughnessy sits out again. If O'Shaughnessy is out, the best bet is that Hollister and Luke Farrell split most of the playing time at the position against the Colts. Fantasy managers should ignore the TE position in Jacksonville.
Jacksonville Jaguars tight end James O'Shaughnessy (hip) missed another practice on Wednesday after sitting out of the Week 17 blowout loss to the New England Patriots. It's not a good start for O'Shaughnessy this week, and he'll need to get back on the field in the next two days in order to have a shot at playing in the Week 18 regular season finale against the Indianapolis Colts, where the Jags will merely be looking to play spoiler. In his absence last week, Luke Farrell caught one of two targets for seven yards. The Jaguars have gotten Chris Manhertz and Jacob Hollister back from the COVID-19 list, so they'll at least have more options at the position this Sunday if O'Shaughnessy misses another game. Fantasy gamers would be wise to avoid the TE position in Jacksonville in both DFS and season-long formats to close out the regular season.
